De Bruyne scored a goal and assisted on another during Belgium's 2-1 win over the United States in the round of 16 at the World Cup on Tuesday.

De Bruyne was a menace all game and it only seemed a matter of time before he and Belgium would break through. He got off six shots and was a threat to score for the full 120 minutes. The Wolfsburg youngster will have to be at top form in Belgiums' next match against a surely favored Argentina side this Saturday.

De Bruyne's free kick in the 70th minute was headed in by Marouane Fellaini during Belgium's 2-1 win over Algeria in their World Cup opener on Tuesday.

De Bruyne has officially signed with VfL Wolfsburg after a transfer from Chelsea, ESPN FC reports.

De Bruyne struggled to get much first team action under manager Jose Mourinho, so a move back to Germany was the best way for him to get more playing time. He spent last season on loan at Werder Bremen and now heads back to the Bundesliga for an undisclosed fee. Borussia Moenchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen, and Schalke all showed interest, although Wolfsburg was the only one willing to meet the Chelsea fee.

De Bruyne is expected to transfer to VfLWolfsburg, after undergoing a medical exam Friday, Goal.com reports.

De Bruyne hasn't been able to crack the starting XI at Chelsea, so he'll head back to Germany to get some first team football. He spent last season on loan at Werder Bremen, but it sounds like this move could be a permanent one away from Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea reportedly have received two bids for de Bruyne from unnamed European teams, although a fee has not been agreed, the Daily Mail reports.

For all intents and purposes, de Bruyne is done at Chelsea. He has failed to gain much first team action and is expendable enough to be sold during the January transfer window. With a desire to see more playing time, he'll have to hope that Chelsea can agree on a transfer fee and let him go.
